future of oakland “has its own energy” says brick founder
Unique Character Of Oakland Is Making It A Top Choice For Development, Residents
“Authenticity is what’s drawing people to Oakland.“
Brick founder Rob Zirkle joined several colleagues on a panel of the Bisnow event “Future of Oakland”. The event brought together architects, builders, and developers from around the Bay Area to discuss the Oakland market for “construction, development, outlook and projections!”
Speakers agreed that the public perception of Oakland has changed; it is no longer a second choice to San Francisco. Oakland now presents abundant opportunities for creating properties that take advantage of sustainable transit options.
Oakland is now a desirable destination of choice. As Zirkle commented, “authenticity is what is drawing people to Oakland… This is a real place that has its own energy”.
